Save Time and Your Clothes with an ENERGY STAR Clothes Washer
In addition to saving an average of $50 per year on your energy and water bills, ENERGY STAR qualified clothes washers can also save you time and help your clothes last longer.
Without a bulky agitator there is more usable space in the tub for laundry — especially larger items like comforters. More capacity also means fewer loads of laundry each week. Some agitator-free washers can wash over 20 pounds of laundry at once, compared to 10–15 pounds for a conventional top-loader.
Save Your Clothes
Instead of twisting and pulling clothes around a turning agitator, front-loaders and advanced top-loaders use sophisticated wash systems to flip or spin clothes through a reduced stream of water, washing your clothes gently. This lengthens the life of often-washed items and leads to less lint in the dryer. Because they are so gentle, many models can safely clean silk, wool and other hand-washables.
